Distracted and Misled

Do men make their own gods? Yes, but they are not gods! Jer. 16:20

Lord, forgive us our appetite for distraction and diversion. Forgive our fascination with celebrities and our envy of the self-indulgent.  Help us to see that the ephemeral cannot sustain or guide us.  Do not let our love of entertainment nor our attachment to sentimentality displace the careful thought and sustained work that is needed to heal our country.  Help us to seek lives of meaning and purpose, to invest our wealth in building up our communities, and to share our gifts in ways that bring us closer to you.  Guide us toward wisdom O Lord.

Amen.
